Tulip Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone,

I can't believe it is nearly November already - where has the year gone? Made me think I had better get a move on with my Christmas cards! I have made a few today that I thought I would share with you using the Docrafts Tulip range. I hve used the free stamps that came with the last Creativity Magazine and the linen feel papers.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cards Galore - Anything Goes

The Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
Crafty Bloggers Network - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking and I look forward to reading your comments.

Christmas Cards

Hi everyone,

Well I am now well into my Christmas card making. Started a few weeks ago and I have to say it took me a while to get into it. Now very much enjoying it! With Christmas cards I like to spend a few hours doing a a fair few at a time, so have now done 3 sessions. Here are a few of the cards I have made...

For the first card, I used some of the things I have left over from previous years. I can't remember what the collections were called but know they were all Docrafts. I used my mum's grand calibur to cut the paper shape. 

For the second card, I used this gorgeous fairy image from Docrafts - they are great for making quick small cards and only cost 25p per pack which is a bargain! The background paper is from the Docrafts Tulip range which is lovely - I'm having to ration myself with this as trying to use up some of my old stuff too! All the papers have a linen feel to them. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

J&C Creations - Contemporary Christmas

For the third card, I used a sticker I have had for ages and I think I may have got this paper free from a magazine. It's not the usual Christmas colours but it's sometimes nice to do something a bit different.

Have you all started your Christmas cards? It's nearly the end of October - time to going by very fast!

Thanks for looking and I always love to read your comments.

Christening Cards

Hi everyone,

 Just a quick post from me this evening to show you two christening cards I have made...

The first is for a baby girl so I made it nice and pink and girly and used a forever friends bear.

The second was for an older girl of about 12 so I still wanted it quite girly but not so pink!

Thanks for looking! :o)
